Pros

Opportunity to help a much needy socio-economic population. Smaller staff development classes, giving opportunity to know instructors and be known.

Cons

High expectations, little to no cohesiveness within teams, disparity of pay scale, removal of bilingual stipend, yet have more students.

Advice to Management

Give opportunity for other team members to take leadership roles, i.e. team members, RTI, etc. Give back Bilingual stipend.

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility as a teacher; summers off as well as holidays.

    Cons

    Depending on your campus, there is not consistency in how each school is run.

    Advice to Management

    Work together as a team to have THE SAME, COHESIVE RULES THAT EVERYONE HAS TO FOLLOW, ADMIN AS WELL AS TEACHERS.

    I worked at Conroe Independent School District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well-managed district, pay is good for teachers, lots of district pride, very professional place to work. Large enough that there's plenty offered to keep staff well-informed and well-prepared but it's not so large that it's a "big city" school. Definitely a place where I enjoyed working for 8 years. I felt valued there.

    Cons

    Not super progressive in terms of teaching methods. Still very "test-focused". Para-educators and support staff aren't paid proportionally to the teachers. They are paid "market value" and in comparison with the districts around CISD. Hard to get a job with CISD.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to change! CISD doesn't know everything there is to know about teaching. There should be more influence in teaching methodology from outside, more progressive sources.
